This Artist Blends Their Sarcastic Nature With His Adopted Cat’s Attitude In His 35 Humorous Illustrations Interview With Artist
Cats are our friends, enemies, frenemies, and in some cases - muses. Just by existing, they have occupied the internet, and today we have one more artist for you related to cats.
Instagram account st.aftercigs already has a pretty big following of 190K people who were bewitched by the paintings of a sassy, inspirational, and sometimes scary cat that is doing human things. The artist told Bored Panda where the inspiration comes from: "I adopted a cat in early 2021, and I am really into her grumpy and sassy cattitude; that’s how the whole story started. I observe her, play with her, and I blend her cattitude with my sarcastic nature into the painting."
So, without further ado, we present you with these rather bold humorous artworks.
Bored Panda got in touch with the artist to learn more about their artwork.
To go into the art world, you don’t need to have a background full of art schools and universities, and this artist is proof. When asked about their education, they shared: “I am a self-taught and always learning artist. I find my inspiration in my little feline companion. Each brushstroke is a journey of discovery as I capture her colors, textures, and emotions of her.”
This feline companion, who inspired all their artwork, joined the artist’s studio in 2021. “Fate brought us together, and I couldn’t be happier! I stumbled upon my feline companion behind my housing area, and, awwww, it was love at first sight.”
Creating one such artwork takes “around 3-5 days from scratch to finish,” the artist shared.
Through their artwork, artists want to share their thoughts and ideas with the world. We wanted to know what this artist would like for their audience to take away from their illustrations. “Through PowPow, I hope to convey the sassiness and complexity of these beloved creatures. Each piece is a tribute to their ‘Multitudes’ or so-called Catitude,” the artist wrote.
To grow, we tend to plan ahead. We asked what this artist holds for us in the future. “I’m constantly pushing my boundaries and exploring new techniques to bring my feline subjects to life. Do stay tuned for upcoming projects/paintings ahead. Meow~”
